A couple of weeks ago a mate and I went up to The Pinnalces to do some star trail photography.. I wanted to try a new technique to see how it would work out.. unfortunately this technique involves taking hundreds of photos and combining them after.. so you don’t actually know if you’ve got a good shot or not.. until you get home and put it all together! This made me quite nervous to say the least.. the prospect of traveling 4 hours (return) and being there for a few hours with no guarantee of a great shot.. not fun! haha.
Anyway, the good news is that the photo worked out fine.. the bonus is, that I was able to make a video out of the 188 frames I photographed!
Check out the video over at Vimeo: http://vimeo.com/15682043
188 frames on a Canon 5DmkII with a 16-35 f2.8L lens.
All photos were 30 second exposures at 16mm, f2.8, ISO1000
